New Year's Eve Bash with GLITTER WIZARD, PINS OF LIGHT, and OWL!!
Looking for the rock on New Year's Eve? Look no further than the Hemlock Tavern's New Year's Eve Bash with GLITTER WIZARD, PINS OF LIGHT, and OWL!!! TOTAL ROCK ACTION FROM START TO THE FINISH LINE OF 2013!!!

Includes complimentary champagne toast at midnight!!

The poets sing that GLITTER WIZARD sprung fully formed from the unholy congress of '80s Hair and '70s Glam, but that claim has yet to be authenticated. The San Francisco collective makes anthems for dungeon masters and backstage seducers that are wildly libidinal yet wickedly self-aware, fueled by a potent blend of alchemy, cough syrup and Magick. The new Glitter Wizard 7-inch single funnels and channels the best of Sabbath, Hawkwind, Bowie, and G&R. On the Zeitgeist map, you can plot it at the crossroads where Aleister Crowley meets the Zeppelin shark story. This 7-inch is gonna take you from the dirt track races to the Renaissance Faire and back. In the words of Permanent Records' Lance Barresi, "this is the music playing on your car stereo when you get pulled over." This is music that deserves to be accessorized with a falcon. Glitter Wizard bring the tight sparkly pants and the hair in abundance. And all this style gets underwritten with some heavy substance: the WIZARD comes correct with shredding guitars, Sabbath-esque motor rhythms and organ riffs like boozy emanations from the mouth of Hell.


San Francisco's Pins of Light reside in that murky musical shadow-territory of the nearly unclassifiable. They craft a brutal and intricate mélange of metal, punk and prog that isn't quite any of those things. Pins of Light's most progressive moments are more Motörhead than Mothers of Invention; their metal is more Pink Floyd than it is Judas Priest; the elements of punk are a driving fistfight that's entirely the band's own. Singer and bassist Shane Baker, guitarists Jake Palladino and Ravi Durbeej, and drummer Phil Becker come previously (and currently) from such SF institutions as Dead and Gone, Night After Night, Hightower and Triclops (among a slew of others). The group's debut album II was recorded by Kurt Schlegel (Jello Biafra, Melvins, I Am Spoonbender) and Phil Manley (TransAm, The Fucking Champs) at Lucky Cat Recording and mixed by Becker in the band's hometown.


United by a blues-laced, 1960's influenced aesthetic, the album voyages through doom-bringing regions, and more upbeat sections closer to old-school rock n' roll.
